Description
Reach 12 Tohlakai Pumping Plant is located on the western, "San Juan Lateral" portion of the project. In order to award a construction contract for construction Reclamation must be granted permanent right of way and construction easements for all required property. Reclamation has worked with the Navajo Nation to obtain these documents on the Navajo Nation Tribal Fee Lands. Reclamation has coordinated and built relationships with the Navajo Nation to emphasize the high priority nature of the project and to expedite the Navajo Nations approval for consent process. Reclamation is working with the Navajo Nation to develop an expedited approval process on the remaining construction reaches for the project.
